As the summer temps finally start to cool down, anticipation for breaking out the fall wardrobe is climbing to an all time high. From layering up in jackets and sweaters to the season’s rich color palette, the reasons why I love fall fashion are endless. Among the season’s essentials is one specific piece that I rely on to instantly add a chic edge to any look. Let me introduce you to the ankle boot.
Combining style and comfort, this classic boot is my go-to for dressing up an everyday look. I have to say, the ankle boot may very well be one of the only shoes that looks chic with nearly everything — shorts, dresses, jeans, leggings, the list goes on. One of my favorite ways to wear them is with a flirty pair of silk shorts and a sweater for a day out and about in the city.
A perfect transitional piece, the ankle boot allows you to extend the wear of your summer sundresses into your fall wardrobe like this Fashionista demonstrates. She looks polished and pulled together in a sleeveless floral dress and tan heeled ankle boots. The chunky heel is surprisingly comfortable for walking from class to class and gives the boots a more casual feel. The strap detailing and cut of the boot channel an almost country-chic vibe that compliments the soft flowers in her dress.
With so many different variations of the boot, it’s easy to find just the one to suit your style. For a bohemian look, go for these Dolce Vita ankle strapped boots with a stacked heel. Or if your style is more glam, give these black and gold embellished booties a try. And if you have expensive taste (like me), add these iconic, fire red Chloé boots to your wish list.
So if you haven’t already, get ready to find yourself looking to punch up your look with the ever-fabulous ankle boot all year round.
